Over at Rise to the Top, David Siteman Garland asks “Why Should I Create My Own Online Course?”
He identifies 5 reasons, including:
- Leveraging your time (as opposed to selling your time hour by hour, as in personal coaching)
- Building a solid income stream with a reasonable number of customers (dozens or hundreds)
- Packaging and selling what you already know and want to share
- Positioning yourself as a trusted authority
- Strengthening your overall sales funnel and supporting the sales of other products/services
Do you have other reasons for creating online courses?
